Penticton-based folk singer Ari Neufeld, played at the Rossland Miners’ Hall on Saturday to an entranced crowd.

Neufeld is known for his intimate live performances that create a unique energy. That energy came forth as the performer related to the audience between songs, and as he put it, went on stage with no agenda. Neufeld sings and plays the guitar while playing drums with his legs through an amplified wooden box.

On Saturday, he was without his usual step box, but got by drilling a hole and inserting a microphone into his touring case. He noted that the impromptu solution actually sounded pretty good.

Neufeld related stories to each song, in the way only a true folk singer would, intertwining the tragedy of his father dying with stories of his recent performance in Texas for the likes of Willie                                     Nelson.

Neufeld is now hoping to get a record deal and move to Texas.

The concert was a part of Rossland Council for Arts and Culture’s monthly concerts.
